Ziploc Omelets

I thought I had already posted this....

I've made these at home but this weekend was the first time I saw this recipe in action feeding 10 people (kids included) a hearty breakfast!!! And no complaining from anyone about something they don't like to eat in their food!

These are so good, you'll make them at home, camping, for one person or a huge crew!!!!!

Best feature is that no one has to wait for their special omelet !!! Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker. (must be ziploc)

- Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the quart size Ziploc bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.

- Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green
pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc. (make sure meats such as bacon are cooked first)


- Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake and squish to mix eggs and ingredients.

- Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

- Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You
can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. (Friends did a test and said you can do three eggs but adjust time to 16-17 minutes)


- Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for
everyone to be amazed.


I usually have a warm tortilla ready so that it's just like a breakfast burrito and no dishes!

Imagine having these ready the night before, and putting the bag in
boiling water while you get ready. And in 13 minutes, you have a nice
omelet for a quick breakfast!!!

My wife has been using that method for a few years now. It really is the bomb! The kids love them and it's almost foolproof. It really is hard to screw up unless you do more than 2 eggs in a bag. It begins to take a really long time with more than 2.

Glad you guys can use this! I've had the recipe since last summer Sorry I forgot to post it up here!

For the big crew, we had a huge two burner (like a camp chef) with a big stock pot on it and were doing around 10 at a time!

Just think how much time it would save out hunting with all your stuff pre-cut, cooked, etc... and in baggies, just spoon some into the eggs and viola!!!!!

Tiff... I really like that... gonna have to talk to my boss and a couple of others here at work.... we all like breakfast, and scrambled eggs/omelets, but none of us really has time to cook in the morning... We could actually do this at the shop over the propane burner... that would be awesome.

Anyone else microwave their scrambled eggs?
I do sometimes for a quick breakfast. Takes about 45 seconds in the microwave. Just make sure to use a safe dish to do it in. I use pyrex.
